Day 199: Life after My Camino de Santiago

Updated: Mar 29, 2023

February 3, 2019

It is Super Bowl Sunday, and I was straightening some things in my kitchen before my girlfriend and two friends come over. I found some miscellaneous papers and included in them was the small sheet of paper you see in this image. The Camino de Santiago touched my heart once again just by reading it. Thank you, God!


And the interesting thing is that I don’t recall seeing this before and don't know where on the Camino I got it. But I have it and am grateful for its message.


I have included "The Beatitudes of the Pilgrim" typed into the post below:



The Beatitudes of the Pilgrim


Blessed are you pilgrim, if you discover that the Camino opens your eyes to what is not seen.


Blessed are you pilgrim, if what concerns you most is not to arrive, but to arrive with others.


Blessed are you pilgrim, when you contemplate the Camino and you discover it is full of names and dawns.


Blessed are you pilgrim, because you have discovered that the authentic Camino begins when it is completed.


Blessed are you pilgrim, if your knapsack is emptying of things and your heart does not know where to hang up so many feelings and emotions.


Blessed are you pilgrim, if you discover that one step back to help another is more valuable than a hundred forward without seeing who or what is by your side.


Blessed are you pilgrim, when you don’t have words to give thanks for everything that surprises you at every twist and turn of the way.


Blessed are you pilgrim, if you search for the truth and make of the Camino a life of your life.


Blessed are you pilgrim, if on the way you meet yourself and gift yourself with time, without rushing, so as not to disregard the image in your heart.


Blessed are you pilgrim, if you discover that the Camino holds a lot of silence; and the silence of prayer, and the prayer of meeting with God who is waiting for you.
